An Edinburgh college has revealed plans to install Scotland’s largest solar panel roof on it’s main campus, according to reports from Mimeos.
Edinburgh’s Telford College is planning to fit up to 650 solar panels at it’s West Granton Road Campus.
The college which has shown it’s dedication to the green sector offers courses related to renewable energy and is seeking to become self efficient.
Sun Dog energy, which recently installed a multi million pound solar roof on London’s Kings Cross Staition has been appointed to do the first phase, which will see the installation of 200 panels generating 50KW per hour.
Miles Dibsdall, Principal of Edinburgh’s Telford College said:” We have a strong commitment to developing and strenghting our green credentials and the installation of the solar panel roof, with the other technologies we are planning is a major endorsment of this pledge.
“It will provide us with a ground breaking, living and breathing renewable energy model that will allow both students and teaching staff to upskill their learning in this field.
The college this year launched the Edinburgh Renewable Energy Innovation Centre (ERIEC) offering training for workers in the renewable and construction industries.
